ST ANDREW'S, GRAFHAM

St Andrew's, Grafham is a beautiful country church, designed, built and lavishly decorated by 
Henry Woodyer. Although we are a small congregation we love God, we love our church 
and we try to love and serve our neighbours.

Our weekly worship on Sundays at 11.15am  is from the Book of Common Prayer, compiled in the sixteenth century by Thomas Cranmer, and modified in 1662. Our services, of either Holy Communion or Mattins (Morning Prayer) have been familiar to generations of Christians for the wonderful language - dignified and memorable phrases that speak so clearly to our human condition.

We very much look forward to meeting you.

September evening

When coming to St Andrews you can always be assured of a very warm welcome. A welcome to those from all walks of life; the young, the elderly, the rich and poor, a welcome to those over 60 but not grown up yet, and a welcome to children and teenagers growing up too fast!

The Summer has gone all too quickly and now as we approach September it looks as if we can enjoy a spell of good weather towards the end of the School Holidays. We have had many special services at St Andrew’s, always giving a warm welcome to newcomers and visiting clergy. Coffee after the Service has been very popular and our thanks go to Jill and Colin for arranging this. Services have been well attended, and Evensong on the first Sundays from April to September is a firm favourite with so many. It’s such a boost for the Choir, having members of Holy Trinity Choir joining us. Everyone enjoyed the Wonderful Lunch Party at Old Barns on 7th July. Colin and Jenny made everyone so welcome and everyone’s commitment made for a very happy day, even though it rained for some of the time. A very special thank you to all. At the end of July we celebrated Lammas, and thanks to Jill for making the special bread for Communion. It’s lovely that we celebrate Rogation and Lammas at St Andrew’s, and we look ahead now to Harvest Festival at the beginning of October. We also have the special fund-raising event for Holy Trinity and St Andrew’s on the 15th September at Holy Trinity. Now with God’s guidance we go onwards and upwards as we welcome Camilla to lead us forward, and remember her in our Prayers as she prepares for her Licensing by the Bishop on September 11th, when all are welcome. I would also like to give very special thanks to all the clergy who have committed themselves to St Andrews during our time with no Priest.                   Penny Overton
